I've been waiting over a decade for the pieces to fall into place, but they're finally here: I just got a Supra FAX 288i modem and Procomm Plus 2.11, both with calling-line identification support. I modified Procomm's host-mode script to scan for the call-ID string, look up the number in my database (which is automatically updated whenever I back up my HP-95 to the PC), form the string "NAME is calling", and spawn a batch script to run the READ program that came with the Sound Blaster Pro that reads English text. Now my incoming calls are announced by the Sound Blaster, with name if known and number otherwise. -- edp (Eric Postpischil) "Always mount a scratch monkey." email@example.com Disclaimer: The opinions of Digital Equipment Corporation do not reflect mine.
